February Fotos..

Before we finally say goodbye to frozen February, I'm going to try and put on some photos which have defined the last month for me. Here goes: above is a reminder of that delightful and "unexpected" day of snow we had. It's the view from my Sitting Room window down into my garden, with the cherry tree looking especially magical and the road looking unusually empty.
Ah well, half an hour later and my computer just won't let me load the other photos I wanted to put on. Never mind. I had a lovely one of Son and Grandson on my Birthday, and a gorgeous photo of Daughter, which is on her Facebook. I'm sure it's my fault, because I'm a complete techno-dummy (as some of you will recall). Daughter is coming to collect Grandson tomorrow morning, so if she has the time, I'll get her to try. Now, though, I have to get myself to bed, because Grandson is sure to wake early. See you in March!

What a lovely photo of the view from your front window during the snow. All so lovely & clean and untouched.

Sometimes blogger just won't let you publish photos. Sometimes its very quick and sometimes takes for ever & just occasionally you have to wait for another day.
Hope it is nothing you have done. It probably isn't!

Our country was exceptionally beautiful for a while back there covered n virgin snow. Iloved it as we were snowed in and people were out sledging and snowballing and taking photo's.

It was such a peaceful time. Snow dulls all sounds except for the crunch underfoot of virgin snow being compacted. Wonderful piccy. Hope your daughter is recovering well. See you in March!

Can't believe how quickly everything has changed! Was it only three weeks ago we were building snowmen? Loving the crocuses and snowdrops now though. Flick xx

I think it will be a long time before February 2009 is forgotten. If ever. Lovely photo.

Lovely picture. I read your last blog and boy did it bring back memories. I used to live in Brighton and work in Hove - born in Portslade.

Hi Maggie, sorry for the belated reply - yes it did all look wonderful in the snow. As for the photos, I was so frustrated, and even Daughter couldn't sort them out, so I don't think it was me! M xx

Hi MOB, yes it was such a delight to be able to crunch fresh snow underfoot - I can remember doing it much more often when I was a girl. Thanks for your good wishes re Daughter, she looks amazing (that's why I wanted to put the photo on). M :-)

Hi Flick - it was lovely, and over
too quickly really, but now I've got crocuses and daffodils even!

Hi Donna, thanks for your lovely comment, though your photos are always wonderful. The House is actually 1895, so we really are Victorian. Not so sure about the Romantic - though I'm hoping... M xx

You're so right Crystal, and isn't it great that we have our Blogs to help us remember how things are (or were)? M xx

Hi Auntie Gwen, thanks so much for popping over - I must do some catching up with you all today while I have the chance! It's raining here today, and I have frogs in the pond and daffodils in the garden. M :-)

Hi Reasons 123, how lovely that it brought back memories for you - you certainly are a local girl. BTW, I really like your photo, and will be over to visit you later. M xx
